Productivity is said to be up compared to those working eight-hour days and staff are reportedly happier with more time spent outside work. In return, employees are banned from using social media at work and there are fewer pauses in meetings. The aim behind the concept is that staff will become more motivated during the time spent at work. Linus Feldt, the CEO of app developer Filimundus, told the Fast Company: “To stay focused on a specific work task for eight hours is a huge challenge. In order to cope, we mix in things and pauses to make the workday more endurable.”
